Our Team

Chris Wolhuter

Chris has been racing bikes all over the world for the greater part of the past 10 years. After having tried many different chamois creams and not finding one that worked for him, he recognized a gap in the market and set out to create a superior chamois cream.

The initial steps saw Chris mixing various essential oils into baby bum cream in his mother in law’s kitchen, until eventually the MAGIC formula was discovered. With the help of an internationally recognized pharmacist, the final formula was perfected and manufacturing was set up in a highly accredited facility.

Whilst still racing professionally, Chris has taken a keen interest in the business side of the cycling industry which saw him take ASS MAGIC to the South African market in 2014. As a natural progression additional brands were added to the portfolio culminating in what was to eventually become Bikalot.
